Polishing turbo baldes & other stuff

Does anyone know for how much and where i can get my turbo blades polished up to a mirror finish (or close to)
I am located in the western subs of melb.
Also does anyone have a single CSA tri spoke 4 sale 15 x 7. The exact model is called a CSA sonar, they are about 8 years old and they dont make em any more and i desp need one. They are falcon stud pattern of course.
Aslo does anyone need seats from and EB II front and back, all in good cond except a small repairable tear in the drivers seat.


Weapon of choice.

EB II 4.0 litre 5 spd manual
Dumped on its tits with rims
Hardly legal tint. EL interior.
Hi-Flow mandrel cold air intake.
Extractors, 2.5' exhaust....
Lip spoiler, custom boot garnish!

I hear it's about $150 per wheel to get a professional polish. And I highly, do not recommend polishing them yourself :D

Re: Polishing turbo baldes & other stuff

eatom - did you use autosol polish, that worked well when i used it on my turbo blades, i was just too lazy to keep on sanding and sanding each rim for about 6 hours. so one is really good 2 arent bad and 1 is shit, but thats the one i smashed into a gutter.

ive seen ads in the trader here in adelaide rims polished for $30 each. i wouldnt expect it to be more then that.

Re: Polishing turbo baldes & other stuff

they could be. But it would be an absolute can't to do, the rim part would be easy enough. If ya want the polished looks get XF ghia rims. Or you could buy my EL GT's, i'll give them to you for the special price $1000 :O .
